The protocol’s liquidity providers faced a phishing attack on Monday
Uniswap has now escaped the consolidation zone and eyes higher levels

The gains in Uniswap come amid a suspected phishing attack on its v3 protocol liquidity providers. The attack, which occurred on Monday, led to the loss of around $4.7 million ETH tokens. ERC20 tokens and NFTs were also stolen in the sophisticated attack. Uniswap crashed by almost 10% following the attack. Uniswap’s development team clarified that the phishing attack was not caused by an error in the protocol.
